Error that only one recovery point backup can exist for drive

Windows 10 System recovery 21

I have a hard drive that was used In my computer over year ago. System recovery identifies this hard drive as B:Backup.I have changed the letter from B: to Q: and the name from "backup" to "new _data". The problem is when I attempt to backup this Q hard drive system restore will not allow me because It still identifies this hard drive as B: Backup it thinks there is still an open backup job. I am getting an error that only one recovery point backup can exist for drive. I cannot find any backup jobs that I can delete for this hard drive.

How do I get system recovery to re-identify this hard drive with its new name?

Any hidden files that belong to VSR on the drive?

Did you reboot the system? After rebooting the system please modify the backup job to reselect Q drive.

No hidden files

Rebooted a number of times

I moved the files to a temp disk since there were only a few.  Reformatted disk and reboot NOJOY

Remove the volume Reboot, recreated volume reboot No JOY

Maybe the only way is to delete the history and job files and recreate the job?
